kexec -l /boot/vmlinux --append="test_kexec_cmdline"
kexec -e

If system boot ok you may check dmesg or /proc/cmdline for
test_kexec_cmdline tag.
If system does not boot, you can't check w/o serial console, imho.

iirc, kyak have done some patches right for this test case.

btw, --append kexec option is appending to original cmdline which is
passed as is too.
To override original cmdline use --cmdline option.
